8:00 am
obama republican opponent mitt romney. who won who lost the media somehow completely ignored. candidate right outside the town hall where last night debate took place i'll be back with more in just a few moments. time she's wanted in the.
8:01 am
twenty four hour global news live. with me rule received barack obama narrowly edged his republican challenger mitt romney in the second installment of what's been dubbed america's most popular reality program now the latest televised presidential debate sort. of next month's crucial poll but one item was missing from the mainstream coverage of the event that of the arrest of a presidential candidate right outside the venue. reports from washington. by all accounts this debate was thought to be crucial for the president and and his chances of getting reelected especially after the first debate two weeks ago when the president looked less and less competitive then governor romney this time
8:02 am
around he was on the offensive which got the media and his supporters very excited according to television audience polls the president came out as the winner in this debate they kept arguing the tax plan is going to add more to the country's gigantic dad true will be better at competing with china and the rest of the world in terms of economic growth and it was very it was very little on foreign policy there was one more debate coming out before the election that one specifically on foreign policy when there was one question about leave and the murder of the american ambassador there and the president did come up with a. punchline to that he said this was up we were going to find out who did this and we're going to hunt them down because one of the things that i've said throughout my presidency is when folks mess with americans we go after them as far as leave yeah the administration would want to present the mission of toppling qaddafi as a huge success as they had before at the tragic attack this september in benghazi but now it's hard to cover up the fact that libya is very far from that success
8:03 am
story that it's a mess with radical forces on the rise but again these debates are not about discussions they're more about who's going to deliver a better punchline who will provide for a better show essentially and it says the news cycle here where you focus entirely on around the debates has been like one big reality t.v. show with all these never ending discussions on the body language of the candidates all the channels do that by experts to analyze the candidate smile with body potion as they stand up or they sit down during the debate they are of course have this cardiogram with the viewers reaction to what they're saying so there is a very skilled cooled build up of excitement here which makes two great reality t.v. but it's a big question whether americans really have a choice something that has gotten cool. please notice that uncovered by the mainstream media here by this nonstop reality t.v. was the arrest the arrest of a presidential candidate in this election jule styne nominee from the green party
8:04 am
she was arrested shortly before the debate right outside the town hall where this debate was being held she and her running mate were protesting their exclusion from these presidential debates they were asked to leave they refused to do so and they were arrested for blocking the traffic the fact that there are other candidates in this presidential election outside these two parties very few americans know anything about that is because as jule styne told me when we set down for an interview a few months ago they're being pushed out of the debates by those who are interested in keeping a true horse race she was referring to special interests take a listen what they really have is the support of the one percent and then they have a propaganda campaign going on an intensive public relations and psychological warfare that's intended to convince people that they don't have any options the american system is designed to eliminate political opposition like some of the. you know dictatorships that we criticize that have rigged political systems in many
8:05 am
ways the american system is also rigged but in ways that are not as straightforward jill stein will be on ballots although not in all states she was also telling me how hard it is for an independent candidate to get on those ballots in the u.s. that every state has its own intricate rules centrally designed to keep it a two party race as far as these big televised presidential debates there are organized by the democratic and republican parties through the commission on presidential debates so there's not much enthusiasm on part of that commission to lead a third party in but you would think the media that's somewhere between discussing the body language of the candidates the chemistry on stage the dresses of the wives that somewhere between all those things they would mention the arrest of a presidential candidate but no it's being completely ignored. she said i'm gonna write that she spoke to the green party's presidential candidate jill stein so you
8:06 am
can watch the interview in full in approximately twenty five minutes time right here on. well the candidates from the green a libertarian and constitution parties have been excluded from t.v. debates and largely ignored by the media politics professor stephen zunes says it's america's electoral system that's ultimately robbing people of a genuine choice unfortunately the choice is not as great as many of us would like to see. so one problem with the american political system is that we don't have apportion representation that we have so it's a winner take all system by state through the electoral college pretty much realistically anyway the only choices are these two main parties combined decided to have more to get elected specially the president you know you need to raise millions and millions of dollars and you have to of course go to people who have that kind of money and many americans myself included with preferred of the
8:07 am
political system where we could get our conscience vote our ideals through what we believe in and said we seem to be naturally stuck in this cycle every four years coding for the lesser evil in many respects so. frustrated as i am that there is not more differences between the candidates at the same time i do i do recognize. that you need nice small differences could have major major repercussions what will change when america picks its president amid muslim rage working the iran tight rope pushing china russia as occupy anger spreads to parties still dictate will their. u.s. election close. to beginning of october twenty second. live from moscow this is r.t. now to iran says it's working with new delhi to find ways to settle payments for iranian oil and currently about half of india's payments are made in euros for the
8:08 am
latest e.u. sanctions by an old dealings with iranian banks iran's been the consistent pressure over its nuclear program amid fears it might be after an atomic bomb now on top of the e.u. oil embargo financial and trade sanctions nineteen iranian t.v. and radio stations were taken off the air in europe but energy hungry asian countries refused to comply with the european restrictions with india saying it won't reduce the amount of all it buys from iran political analyst says the e.u. cannot dictate to the rest of the world. the indian government is very much for that we are not going to cut down any more our of iranian oil imports and that we will continue buying from them and therefore the financial arrangements are being worked out but i think now that there is a time for a regional currencies to gain ground and for trading to happen in alternative currencies apart from the euros and the dollars i've seen the longer the trade will
8:09 am
go on and the sanctions will not impact india's ability to have relations with iran europe is in a state of decline and you seem to be because of the crisis i think they are punching above their weight in trying to impose a solution on the iranian question and i think it is fanciful to imagine that you are up against a whole decisive screen actor in trying to force iran. i think the west unfortunately is not interested in a solution they want to keep this part modeling short of war i mean the real solution is no sanctions no more we want better luck here in india most of us feel the same money i mean this is totally unredeemable the kind of pressure that's being exerted on a country when the allegation that it's developing nuclear weapons is not even brewing this impasse has been going on for years not and we would like to see. oh you could move me from three hundred you change and to this kind of warfare for solutions so ten minutes past four in the afternoon here in the russian capital
8:10 am
libyan rebels have executed sixty seven khadafi fighters and possibly the dictator himself of course this was about a year ago it's according to a new report by human rights watch at the findings also imply the very same militias that toppled the colonel still play a major role in libyan politics the revelations come as the u.s. that supported the uprising in the country speed at speeds up efforts to help libya create a commando force to fight islamic extremists nearly eight million dollars initially intended for pakistan has been redirected to form a five hundred strong elite regiment over the next year. the author of pakistan terrorism ground zero he believes this shows the u.s. actually has a long term plans for the region. to snort functioning street i don't. need to drench an indian country and its worse situation i would also add that the us led european airlines removed
8:11 am
a dictator like manuel because of the reduced number of small dictators small internet names and warlords who are pushing libya into group or to entering in chaos during. the war on terror i do strongly they were lies and he concentrated in upon his signing by you signing your are but as the americans to leave afghanistan these jihad these forces or also falling america in the middle east as well so that is one reason for america today were fronts from august ninth to libya and there's another reason this has become clear in the recent years that american. or european or changing the moment after spending more than a decade a no fly zone and no american strategic fuller's is shifting into other areas including the middle east and asia pacific and i'm sure that americans are used to for a long. another fight for survival israel remembers the holocaust and perished many who actually cheated death and nazi

bit of irony for the russian royal family after the bolshevik revolution this is the office where the tsar nicholas the second spend most of the last year of his life his whole family had been exiled here and they lead a fairly comfortable existence this was a big house but they weren't allowed to see visitors or go outside themselves leaving the ordinary normal countryside life style they even had thoughts of a scape but within the year the czar and his family would be dead. or alive in moscow disses are a criminal investigation has been opened against prominent opposition figure. is accused of plotting mass riots in russia it comes after
8:15 am
a recent documentary claimed that he received millions of dollars and orders from georgia to cause mass unrest it's something that. denies and with all the details on this now is a. well the investigative committee have launched a criminal case into the proposed organization of riots that's what we're hearing it all follows on the back of a a second part of a documentary called the enough to me protest that was shown on television here in russia now in the documentary we see. speaking with a georgian citizen who has very close ties to the government employee. after the investigative committee had looked at the facts and circumstances that are shown in the documentary they decided to carry out the searches on the home of mr also some of those people close to him as well following that he's been brought in for questioning. himself has said that he was consulting people from georgia concerning
8:16 am
funding for his political party left front however he denies that he ever spoke to anybody concerning the organization of demonstrations all right it's being investigated the moment it isn't the first time. a brush with authorities in two thousand and eleven on the same day is the parliamentary elections here in russia december of two thousand and eleven he was detained by police on a a minor public order offense but this investigation it'll be ongoing for a little while now to find out just what was going on in that documentary that we've we've seen on russian television and it's worth noting. the charges that could be brought against. any of his associates could bring with them a potential jail term of up to ten years so these are very serious charges indeed that are being looked into by the investigative committee right now. now in germany

finds weans. future. dangers of atomic energy might be a step too far neighbors build nuclear power stations right on. the doorstep. also online for you reports suggest the boots of american troops may well overstep the deadline date that they promised to leave afghanistan. millions of jews were killed across europe in the holocaust the israeli government does everything it can to make sure the world never forgets but it's clear reports there are those who believe it's actually forgotten those who survived in the first place . a celebration of life and age dismissed by many here as offensive and misguided nearly seventy years after these women cheated death in nazi concentration camps and their competing to be holocaust survivor beauty queen. who ever went through the hole it cost it's in them inside we will never forget how we
8:18 am
were put through but the younger generation it is possible we understand their roots but otherwise no one really thinks of us. every month dozens of these water victims die in loneliness and poverty forgotten by the country that was supposed to be their promised land the fact that many of these people survived a terrible ordeal and decades of struggle for normal life that followed is pay me laugh the coolest irony is that many flocked to israel after world war two thinking they would live out their lives in safety and prosperity. course why was built this country they went through so much we have about ten years to make it right there won't be any survivors left the law you've. been lives alone in hotel of apartment she spent her childhood hiding from the nazi occupation in the ukraine she and her parents were the only survivors from her family today survival is still her main

8:20 am
so while some may see this as distasteful this pageant is an attempt to reach out to the estimated fifty thousand holocaust survivors living below the poverty line the proceeds helping thousands to pave the way. the government doesn't do nearly enough to help us i received a one time payment from germany for two and a half thousand euros that's it and my husband who is in the ghetto gets four hundred dollars a month for everything it's a value put on those who survived a living hell in a country supposedly cast as a result of this suffering to protect them. r.t. haifa. and a straight into the r.t. world update we go starting with police in kosovo who have used pepper spray on protesters angry at the proposition of the region's electricity distribution network critics describe the twenty six million euro deal with the turkish consortium as underselling the public's wealth was not open to public scrutiny and

widow of former palestinian leader yasser arafat as part of an investigation into whether he died from poisoning at about claims that her husband received a fatal dose of radioactive polonium in two thousand and four just before his death next month investigators will carry out an exhumation of his remains in ramallah. the pop diva madonna is wanted back in russia over this time it's to appear before prosecutors not her fans they're seeking material compensation from the material girl insisting the parts of her recent concert left people morally damaged. explains the material girl herself is unlikely to materialize but that hasn't stopped a russian court in russia's second city of st petersburg from agreeing to hear a case a lawsuit against her for more than ten million dollars in damages by anti-gay groups who allege they have suffered quote moral damages from
8:23 am
a performance that she held recently in that city in august now the reason we're talking about the story today is the plaintiffs have confirmed to the media that they have found madonna's new york city address and have sent a summons in there for her to she will show up to the st petersburg court they've also sent a summons for her to a health and fitness club the hard candy club here in moscow and they're basically trying to get her into the court room again in order to share this case which alleges that madonna essentially promoted so-called homosexual propaganda during her concert there she asked people to sort of raise their hands and support and handed out t. shirts and banners and whatnot but st petersburg unlike the rest of russia had recently passed a law that bans the so-called promotion of homosexuality bisexual ism transgenderism so these groups allege that what madonna did effectively trampled on that law violated the law and supposedly psychologically damage the conscious and the feelings of the residents who were exposed to that madonna is no stranger to

8:29 am
designed to eliminate political opposition like some of the you know dictatorships that we criticize that have rigged political systems in many ways the american system is also rigged but in ways that are not as straightforward so you have to actually see what it takes to get on the ballot if you're not already on as one. the big machine parties each state has its own set of rules which are very demanding very detailed and bureaucratic and require lots of signatures in order to get on the ballot so for the most part you need a lot of money many millions of dollars to buy your way onto the ballot basically by hiring signature gatherers and people to keep track of this is getting seems that money is too powerful here in washington is there a way you see to go against money the power of.
